Welcome to day 2 of Pomegranate Week! Today I wanted to share a craft that I love and enjoy very much: paper piecing. Paper piecing, also known as foundation piecing, is a method of making quilt blocks. I first got into paper piecing because of Jennifer Ofenstein, who runs many amazing communities on LJ and is the genius behind Sewhooked.org.
I started paper piecing in 2008 and before I knew it, I was designing patterns. I even have a spot on the guest designer page at Sewhooked. I thought it would be fun (and really easy!!) to make a pomegranate paper piecing pattern.As I'm a big fan of free patterns, I did upload it here for anyone's personal use.
And as a bonus to this post, I thought I would share the very first video I uploaded to youtube! It is a video of me peeling a pomegranate my way. I made this video on December 26, 2006 and at the time we still had dial-up internet (it would be another 6 months until the cable company finally responded to my constant letters and phone calls about getting high speed internet where we lived). So yes, enjoy my blurry video!
